    As I'm doing a Halo series playthrough and restarted due to realising I wasn't playing at the difficulty level I normally do I just thought I'd ask what is your 'native' setting?

    By which I mean what level do you set your games to when you're not going for a difficulty related achievement or tying to challenge yourself.

    I tend to go to Normal, as while I can do Hard/Heroic it does lead to bad rage moments for me once in a while. That said once I've gone through a game on Hard/Heroic and go back to Normal I often find myself wishing there was something in between.

    Anyhow over to you.

    It varies by game. Sometimes easy is just too easy. I'm an unbelievably reckless player, though, too.

    Easy. I want to be able to see the entire game without getting stuck in particularly difficult sections.

    Once I beat I can start again on progressively higher difficulties for both a challenge and a little more replay value.

    Usually go for the hardest difficulty, I like a challenge.

    I start out easy and turn up the difficulty once I know what I'm facing.

    It varies but usually Hard. Sometimes the hardest difficulty is downright brutal.

    I play on Normal since I figure that's how the game was intended to be played and then Hard after if I feel like a replay.

    Hardest since playing on anything else makes you a filthy casual.

    GravityStorm Got it memorized?

    I usually go normal for games/series/genres I've never played before and go with the hardest or second hardest (to save the hardest for a replay) on games I'm more familiar with.

    I usually play on Normal, but it can vary. I played on the hardest difficulty in Deus Ex because I felt it fit the game more.

    Normal difficulty is my standard. Boring, I know. :/

    Easy to expirence the story, then Legendary, then I'll lower it to Heroic.

    Can you rephrase that in good game terms?

    I start on Normal, beat the game; then try Hard (usually only if there's an Achievement for beating the game on hard).

    Usually, I play every game (barring Fallout: New Vegas, which I change throughout my 17 playthroughs) on Easy, as I'm not a great video gmae player.

    Sorry OP said Halo but start on Easy, then after I beat campaign to hardest, then I go to Hard for subsequent playthroughs.

    It depends. If you get something special for beating each difficulty, I start with Easy. If not, then I usually do Normal.
